Happy Mother's Day!


Are you getting spring where you are?  It's still down right chilly in my part of the world. I froze at my son's little league game last night.

So, I brought a little spring in this Mother's Day card.

I started by creating a 5 x 5 card base onto which I added my patterned papers. I tried to use up supplies I've had in my stash. A length of crochet trim was added to the card front along the transitioning paper patterns. I painted a chipboard butterfly and roughed it up for a vintage feel and added it to the center of a blue daisy embellishing further with a yellow rose to the center.

A seam binding bow was added and layered with raffia adding a silver button to the center. I stamped Happy Mother's Day in black ink in the lower right corner.  Lastly, a few sequins were scattered for a final finishing touch.

I am joining in the fun at: Just Us Girls - Mother

I hope you have a terrific day!
